A chakram is an elegant throwing weapon consisting of a balanced ring made of metal or other hard substance that is thrown with one hand. As a thrown weapon, Strength is used for damage adjustments, and unless enchanted, the chakram must be recovered for reuse from the square upon which it was targeted. An enchanted chakram is tremendous fun to use or watch being used, gracefully orbiting around the battlefield making the best noises ever. A chakram is not very good as a melee weapon, incurring a -2 penalty to-hit, but it does allow you to threaten, flank, and take attacks of opportunity. The chakram belongs to the "Blades, Heavy" and "Thrown" weapon groups.
